Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communication Platforms: The Future Bricks and Mortar for Building Intelligent Water Systems

March 1, 2016

Data, data everywhere….but never enough information to act upon. Utilities have faced this common problem for decades: only a fraction of the data collected is ever analyzed and turned into actionable information. This wasn’t because utility managers did not want to glean valuable information from the data sets; they simply did not have staff available because of tightening budgets and constantly changing priorities. Utilities are also losing highly trained staff due to the aging workforce; the retirement of the baby boomers is taxing the ability of utilities just to keep routine operations going.

Securing Devices in Advanced Metering Infrastructures

whitePaper | January 8, 2020

Smart grid managers and Head End System (HES) vendors depend on data to drive their business. Receiving and analyzing accurate data from grid endpoints - the smart meters - is the main element that determines business success. Their customers, Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMI) managers, then use this data for crucial processes: monitoring energy demand and production, load shifting to maintain a persistent grid balance at all times and billing customers. Each tiny bit of data is the starting point for monetization and asset management and it must be accurate and trusted in order to keep power flowing.

Global Industry Standards for Industrial IoT

whitePaper | June 2, 2021

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a rapidly expanding world of connected objects. As IIoT systems proliferate, large amounts of data are consumed by machine learning algorithms and shared between partners, customers and others. IIoT is a technology environment in which integration and interoperability are critical capabilities and the complexity of this environment makes this difficult to achieve. Standards play a critical role in IIoT for five main reasons. First, users and vendors cannot engineer a custom interface every time components or systems need to interact. Standards can make this explosion of interfaces manageable; they are the lingua franca for interoperability. For suppliers, this eliminates needless costs related to common capabilities instead encouraging a focus on innovations that add value.

Different Dimensions of IOT Security

whitePaper | December 20, 2019

IOT is wirelessly connecting things to the internet using sensors, RFID’s and remotely accessing and managing them over our phone or through our voice. IOT uses various communication protocols such as Zigbee, 6LowPan, Bluetooth and has bi directional communication for exchange of information. The database for IOT is cloud which is also vulnerable to security threats. The increasing amount of popularity of IoT and its pervasive usage has made it more recurrent to prominent cyber-attacks such as botnet attack, IoT ransom ware, DOS attack, RFID hack.
